18. When you don’t want to obey God

This woman gets me fired up. My friend and fellow enneagram 8, Christy Wright, joins me in the studio to talk about obedience, confidence, humility, and so much more. You’re going to want to hear every word of this.

 In this episode, we discuss:

  • How God’s invitation to obey Him is for your good
  • How obedience is often more about our growth than our outcome
  • How to not get stuck on the couch waiting for God
  • How to not run ahead of God
  • How God doesn’t just put up with us, He delights in us

Scripture Mentioned:

  • 2 Cor 12:9
  • 1 Thess 5:24
  • Matt 5:16
